Romantic Wedding Decor Ideas
Many brides have dreamed of their wedding day decor for years. You’ve likely spent hours scrolling and saving inspirational wedding decor pictures online. But when it comes to nailing down your vision for your own wedding, it can be a little more difficult than you anticipated. So, we’ve compiled some of our favorite romantic wedding decor ideas for you to look through.
Baby’s Breath Garland
You’ve likely heard of a baby’s breath wedding bouquet, but have you ever heard of a garland being created entirely out of baby’s breath? Often, baby’s breath gets underestimated since it is technically a floral filler and doesn’t have huge, large petals like roses or peonies. However, its delicate, white flowers and tiny stems make it the “jack of all trades” in the wedding decor and floral design world. If you don’t want to worry about keeping a baby’s breath plant alive, try using preserved baby’s breath instead! Baby’s breath dried is still very delicate and intricate. Plus, it is easy to maintain and much affordable to use when compared to fresh flowers. With a good amount of baby’s breath and even a little bit of greenery, you can make a beautiful, thick garland and use it in many different ways. This baby’s breath garland could drape on a mantleplace or staircase railing. It could line your ceremony aisle and be reused later as a wedding reception table centerpiece. The possibilities are endless with this stunning and romantic piece of wedding decor!
A few simple drapes of fabric can elevate your wedding ceremony or reception space in a way you never imagined possible. Gauzy, thin, draped fabric can help you to dress up any space without blocking important natural lighting. You can use drapes of fabric, such as raw-edged silk or chiffon, to dress up chairs, table centerpieces, and more. A bare, simple arbor can be transformed into a Pinterest-worthy altar with a few long drapes of neutral-colored fabric. If you have bare dooreways or columns, you can drape them with fabric for a stately, elegant result. Add a few little gatherings of flowers, such as baby’s breath and roses, and you’ll fall in love all over again with your venue.
Baby’s Breath Clouds
If you love a romantic aesthetic but aren’t as traditional as other brides, baby’s breath flower clouds could be perfect for you. These floral arrangements aren’t as constricted and structured as traditional rose arrangements. Instead, they give you more flexibility with your arrangement shapes and colors. These baby’s breath clouds can be installed on your tables, floor, or even ceiling for an extra dramatic look. Don’t like white flowers? No problem. You can transform your baby’s breath flowers into any color of the rainbow with a little bit of spray paint. For example, you can create your perfect, dreamy, pink baby’s breath cloud that will leave your wedding guests totally awe-struck.
Maximalist Floral Arches
This coming year, a maximalist style is projected to be very popular among brides. So, if you’re planning to have a floral arch at your wedding ceremony or reception venue, don’t hesitate to add more flowers to your plans. A maximalist floral arch is huge and high-impact. Every possible inch of the arch will be covered with fluffy, voluminous flowers such as hydrangeas. These types of large floral installations can be quite pricey to make. To have this huge, dramatic look at a more affordable price, try using wood flowers and preserved greenery and floral fillers instead!
Candles, Candles, and More Candles!
When you’re trying to create a romantic environment at your wedding venue, there is no better mood lighting option than candles. Candles are elegant, intricate, and beautiful as a decorative element and lighting feature. For a luxurious romantic look, try to gather vintage, golden candelabras with long, thin candles that you can use as part of your table centerpieces. For more of a rustic romantic look, place wide candles on thin wood slices at each table’s center. You can also float wide candles in clear glass vases for an elegant touch. If your venue has chandeliers, lighting them with real (or battery-powered) candles will give you a truly royal vibe. Candles are usually fairly affordable, and you can personalize their presentation so easily.
Dried Flower Arrangements
One of the biggest wedding trends over the past few years has been dried flowers. Dried flowers are often preserved in gorgeous neutral tones that make them the perfect canvas for a romantic color scheme. Whether you want to stick with neutral tones of cream and taupe or want to add some more rosy pink, dried flowers will be perfect for you. You can also add wood flowers to your arrangements for some extra volume and drama. These flowers will look just as beautiful as fresh roses but are much more affordable and long-lasting. Plus, they can be dyed to match any color!
Bridal Party Flowers
When you’re trying to create a romantic atmosphere at your wedding, don’t underestimate the power that your bridal party yields. Having your bridesmaids and groomsmen dressed up in matching outfits with beautiful flowers can truly elevate the vibe at your wedding. Make sure that your bridal party flowers match the rest of your wedding decor. For example, if you have a baby’s breath garland, it can be beautiful to have a matching baby’s breath wedding bouquet, bridesmaid bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres. But don’t be afraid to let your own wedding bouquet stand out in style, size, color, and variation! It is your big day, after all!
Sometimes, your wedding venue might feel a little boring if there is a lot of open, empty airspace. You can solve this problem by hanging flowers. As mentioned before, installing airy clouds of baby’s breath is a great maximalist approach. If you have more of a minimalistic style, you can hang single buds with fishing wire, string, or twine. You can also hang large wreaths of greenery or flowers over your tables or dance floor. These approaches will transform your wedding venue entirely.
So, as you’re planning your romantic wedding decor, don’t forget about the ideas in this article! Baby’s breath is a gorgeous floral filler that can be used in many different and creative ways. Just don’t underestimate its potential! For more beautiful ideas on how to use baby’s breath in your wedding decor, check out this article from Brides.com!
